PXE testing tool??


Does anyone know if there is a test tool to test if PXE works through the network? I am sniffing a boot session of a PXE boot and can see the traffic in my sniffer files fine. Howerer, I work remote and would like a tool that I can run in Windows, kinda simulate a PXE boot request.

I tried to "renew" in Windows, but only DHCP information from my regular DHCP server came in return. Nothing from Altiris PXE...

do you mean that your Altiris PXE server is working fine but not the PXE clients?

Both the PXE server and Clients are working fine. However, to verify the network is configured correctly prior to rollout Clients, I would like a way to verify without having to travel on site to test a client. We have remote stations we can RDP to, run wireshark etc on.

My question is if it is possible to simulate a PXE client boot. I will be able to verify the DHCP response in my Wireshark.
